The annual celebration of projects and initiatives that improve the county’s environment culminates in an event at The Alnwick Garden and, this July, John will be announcing the winning entries on the night.

All shortlisted entries in seven categories are invited to the celebration event and the winners are presented with their awards by the Duchess of Northumberland.

John Grundy has written and presented a variety of architectural and history programmes for both radio and television, and in the late 1990s co-wrote and edited the new edition of Niklaus Pevsner’s Northumberland.

John said: “I have a huge love of the North of England, and Northumberland is a special favourite of mine.

“These awards are a fantastic way of helping to celebrate the work and commitment of community members in improving their local areas – for the benefit of all.

“I very much look forward to hearing about all the shortlisted projects and announcing the winners on the night.”

There is still time to get a last minute entry in for this year’s awards, before the closing date on Wednesday.
